Anyone know characters that were cut/wanted by SB/othe Devs that wanted their IP tobe in the game?

I'm trying to gather as much information as possible. I have quite a bit like Scorpion, Ty, Lara Croft, Abe, Dart, and others. But I want to if there is anything I missed. Do you guys have any information on any items, stages, characters that were going to be in the game but weren't? (A source would be nice as well.)

  • I just know pretty much every main playstation character you can think of, they tried getting them into the game. I still remember talking to Omar long ago, he was all excited about his ideas and characters and such. Superbot didn't put this less iconic cast in this game on purpose, that was just all they can get sadly.

    Lol posted seconds before me.

     

    Could you list them all? I only know about 10 or so characters that were wanted by devs/cut from the game.

  • Lol I thought you just replied back real fast. Well they obviously wanted a whole list of characters in this game. Idk about which ones were cut in the development. Only ones I know are the obvious ones, hayabusa, abe, kazuya, dart, locoroco, master onion, Jin, fat princesses' minion, and some others I can't remember at the top of my head. Omar didn't tell me a list of the characters he wanted in, but when I asked him, example croc, he said like oh yeah we're gonna try to get him, and such. There's just a bunch of characters they really tried to get in.

  • I guess Master Onion, FP minions, and Locoroco would have been very early concepts since Onion and Locoroco ended up in stages and FP minions ended up in FP's moveset. lol

  • There is some concept art showing a cast of a bunch of characters that didn't made the cut.

  •  Ah yeah, I've seen that before. Think I have it saved on my laptop somewhere.

     

    It may have just been a concept for a character screen. Or at least the characters they were thinking of putting in.

  • I think they got the most obvious and important actual first party characters very well. They just wanted the big third party characters that they couldn't get and didn't have time to put in many minor/cult first party characters.

  • Man, what I'd give to play as Buzz and Locoroco. Who's that guy left od Spike?

  • They probably wanted Dante, not DaNTE (yeah, that doesn't really work)

  • I talked to Clockwerk before the game came out in Toronto at some Playstation Event. He said Superbot would obviously choose Old Dante over a version of a character that most people dislike but it wasn't up to them. And told me that Sucker Punch wanted 2 Coles because they felt like they were seperate characters.

     

    Also for that concept character roster. Who the hell are the character between Spike and Cole. And the character beside the Locoroco. BTW Blasto and Chimera would have been awesome

    Also a patapon warrior and Rau Utu were considered. Plus we know about Abe and Dart.

  • Hey guys, I'd like if we could actually get down to the bottom of who some of these guys are.

    Just--Tank, if you're reading this and it isn't against some NDC or something, could you help shed some light on the image?

    The character to the immediate right of Cole is Ellen from Folklore.

    Ah okay thank you. Still wondering about the other characters though. Like that dog/kangaroo character.

  • I recall reading somewhere (no source, sorry) that SuperBot originally wanted Snake but Kojima was only offering Raiden. Or was it Capcom and Old Dante? Might have been both.

  • Found out the person to the left of Spike is a Chernovan soldier from Warhawk.

  • I think Emmett was a better addition than a Warhawk character (and I say this as a super huge fan of Warhawk) because his moveset could be much more unique with the drop thing. He totally should've had Eucadian and Chernovan costumes, though.

  •  "Rau Utu were considered" Where did you hear that from? :o

     

    Yeah. I heard about the Dante thing before. I don't know why they just didn't not add him. It did more harm than good imo.

    Heard about the Cole thing as well.

     

    I recall the reason for the Patapon was because they couldn't make enough moves? Or that he was too small. Can't remember.

     

     

     

    Thanks for all the posts everyone! I knew

    Can someone tell me who:

    -the person next to sackboy is?

    -the person between jak and chimera?

    -the dog guy?

    -the person between dog guy and spike?

    -the person next to loco roco?

    -the person next to Master Onion? (I think that's just a FP minion?)

     

     

    "Found out the person to the left of Spike is a Chernovan soldier from Warhawk."

    Are you sure? In the picture, he looks more like a samurai guy to me.

  • Up. :)

  • Kojima was offering both but backed off only allowing one because he didn't like the idea of Solid Snake fighting Raiden (with good reason, Snake mentored him in MGS2 and Raiden protected him from dying a lot in MGS4).

    Or maybe it was because his son didn't beg him to have Snake be put in PSAS like he did for SSBB. :D

  • Also, about the Eucadian/Chernovan soldiers, I think it'd be pretty redundant to have them be different characters. Both sides used the same weapons, and the vehicles were the same with the exception of appearance, therefore having identical move sets.

    I could see him being called "Foot Soldier" or "Trooper", maybe even "Warhawk Soldier". Naming him Eucadian Soldier would be alright but having one with a Chernovan uniform would be weird.

    Where did you hear that from? :o

  • When the characters were being announced. I believe he was interviewed and that's when he said it, sorry for the lack of a link.
